Traveling to Morocco in August with the fam. Wife and I are vaccinated but the kids aren’t. All under 10. I have been having second thoughts based on the delta variant. Is this a dumb thing for me to do and just reschedule for later? 2 weeks out now and I haven’t cancelled anything yet, we had a brutal summer so really want to get out.

I would reschedule or go without the kids given how fast delta is spreading. They are much more at risk being unvaccinated. Also are you willing to get stuck in Morocco if you guys test positive after arriving there?

Go somewhere you can drive to. Get a Airbnb or otherwise. Flying seems nuts at the moment especially with unvaxxed kids

There are so many options within your country. It’s not really the time to put your family at the whim of a virus and government you can’t control.

I’d say go and enjoy but if you are already feeling uneasy, that feeling may not get better. We have stayed in the US this year because I don’t trust other countries to not not turn on a dime and then be stuck. But if you are visiting family, your increased mental health might outweigh any potential COVID risks.

No fam, purely tourism.

I'm still sticking to domestic travel this year personally

Appreciate the feedback. Damn I guess I was a bit crazy with this, the response is overwhelming.
